ARTH 396 - African Art History

3 Credit Hours
An investigation of the art practices of both Africa and the African diaspora, this course is intended to provide an understanding of African and African-derived art forms. The African continent is a place with a rich artistic history, continuous aesthetic endeavors, and thriving contemporary art scenes. We will examine its visual traditions and current practices of African fine art, photography, design, exhibition practices, and film. Also, we will unpack the influence these traditions and histories have had on artists and critical thinkers of African descent in the Caribbean, Europe and the United States. Rooted in an appreciation of the continent’s diversity, students will become fluent in the visual language that has a lasting impact the rest of the world.
